Christina E. Viviano, Jeffrey E. Moersch and Harry Y. McSween Implications for early hydrothermal environments on Mars through the spectral evidence for carbonation and chloritization reactions in the Nili Fossae region Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets 118

Article first published online: 18 SEP 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgre.20141

Key Points

  • Spectral evidence for talc in Nili Fossae suggests carbonation of serpentine
  • Assemblages may imply carbonation reaction was a significant CO2 sink on Mars
  • Metamorphic history of region evidenced by burial diagenesis of Fe/Mg-smectites
